The name is "conf",
Code:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7 Dec 17  2013 conf
This file appeared as a result of running a POSTIN script from
Code:
iscan-2.29.3-1.usb0.1.ltdl7.x86_64.rpm
(most probably, it was 4 years ago).

ok, I ran this

I'm gonna turn off the computer and check later, and maybe look more closely
at the files in the RPM archive

BTW, have you converted rpms using rpm2tgz or a similar program? I had problems 4 years ago because at that time I didn't know options "-S" or at least "-s" dealing with postinstallation scripts from rpm.

NOTE the txz files were converted from rpm files using rpm2txz -c -S -n -d

No, I did this
Code:
mkdir tmp; cd tmp
tar xf ../iscan-perfection-v370-bundle-1.0.1.x64.rpm.tar.gz
mv iscan-perfection-v370-bundle-1.0.1.x64.rpm/* .
rmdir iscan-perfection-v370-bundle
rm install.sh README.rst
for d in core data plugins
do
  mv $d/*.* .
  rmdir $d
done
mv *.rpm ..; cd ..; rmdir tmp
Then for each RPM I wrote a SlackBuild. In each SlackBuild I used this
Code:
rpm2cpio $CWD/$archive | \
     cpio -i --make-directories --no-absolute-filenames
I moved some files around ...

I just looked at the debian bundle archive.
It has some files that are not in the RPM.
For instance, it has this file
Code:
etc/sane.d/dll.d/iscan
that contains this
Code:
# iscan -- enables the SANE backend(s) required
# Any changes to this file will be lost when upgrading iscan.

Well, I've been able to figure out this one.
Now I can build iscan from source and it's a more
recent version than the one in the binary distribution.
I doubt this will fix the issue but I'll try to install this instead
and I'll make a recap of what I've done later.

I installed devuan (it's a fork of debian without systemd) as a VirtualBox guest
and installed the 3 deb packages, rebooted and it's working.
I noticed that in their iscan.rules they set the group ownership to scanner
Code:
ENV{libsane_matched}=="yes", RUN+="/bin/setfacl -m g:scanner:rw $env{DEVNAME}"
and I didn't notice an entry in their libsane.rules for this product (014a)
whereas my slackware libsane.rules does have an entry for it but sets the group to lp
Also, when the scanner is plugged-in and turned on when I check the appropriate device
in /dev/bus/usb
in slackware it's set to root:lp
but in devuan it's set to root:root
Unfortunately I wasn't able to install the guest additions to devuan, so right
now there's no possibility of retrieving the scanned files through a shared folder.
So, I guess, until I'll figure out how to install to slackware, I'll email them or
post them in a web server

I installed centos as a VBox guest. Now I can scan and retrieve the scanned files.
I don't know why it doesn't work in slackware. I pretty much set the same kind of configs
(/etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf /etc/sane.d/dll.conf and /var/lib/iscan/interpreter), the permissions
look ok (lp group).
I give up for the time being and use the centos guest when I need to scan

i got it running by adding epkowa to dll.conf and editing epkowa.conf
Code:
interpreter usb 0x04b8 0x014a /usr/lib64/iscan/libiscan-plugin-perfection-v370

Fab, I had problems with the Epson V330 on current using the 14.2 install described here.

Following the above described order (first install data, then iscan then plugin) and - instead of only "usb 0x04b8 0x0142" - having "interpreter usb 0x04b8 0x0142 /usr/lib64/esci/libesci-interpreter-perfection-v330" in /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf this scanner is recognized by my linux box again ;-)

EDIT: I tried the set-up described by Toutatis below as well, but that did not make the V330 work at my end

The packages of Alien for current/iscan are from July 2015. Since, there have been a lot of changes in current, which might explain the problem. You might have some luck by compiling it yourself. You could try Aliens build-scripts or those from the website mentioned on my previous post for the V330 (but make sure that all V330-specific stuff is corrected for the V370).

Well, on current iscan stopped working for me last year. I had used the slackbuilds by Simone Giustetti. Comparing the slackbuild for iscan that one can download from his website for Iscan_and_Slackware_14.2 and the one I used just the other day shows that you might need an extra patch from archlinux. Inserted just after the "# Change user permission" section ending in "-exec chmod 644 {} \;" is:
Code:
# From https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/tree/trunk?h=packages/iscan
 patch -p0 -i ${SRCDIR}/jpegstream.cc.patch
Then, check the usb_id.patch for the iscan-data package. This needs the code for the V370. Changing the line for the V330 "+ usb 0x04b8 0x0142" to "+ usb 0x04b8 0x014a" should do the job. As mentioned above and on the site I compiled and installed this package before compiling iscan itself, and then at last the plugin.

For the plugin you need to adapt the slackbuild for the v370. The rpm file to use for the build is another rpm that comes in the plugin-folder inside the V370 "All-in-one package" distribution-rpm (not the source, as this lacks the plugins) from the epson site.

Further the adaptations to /etc/sane.dl etc. as mentioned, but should be in place when working through the advice given on giustetti.net.

Then you might need to follow your own advice above as this made it work for me. Don't ask me why. It's been a continuous struggle with epson-ware at my end.

@przemo

The file /var/lib/iscan/interpreter seems to be created by the command iscan registry
https://manned.org/iscan-registry/95af4de7

I don't remember if dit run it or if this was done automatically. I did not use alienbob's packages, but the epson rpm in http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du...23b746b0ae2360
